Crews respond to house fire in Atkins

Posted: Updated:

Multiple departments were called to the 3000th block of 70th St. in Atkins, for a house fire this afternoon. 

Atkins Fire Chief says the fire started in the second story of the home. The owner of the home lived there for over 60 years, and his daughter and her son were also staying at the home, however no injuries were reported because no one was home at the time of the fire. 

The home is a total loss and the cause of the fire is still under investigation. 

We have a crew on scene, stay with KWWL as this story develops.
